83/365 – Let’s add 10 days…

This photo was taken at least a week ago, before I became swamped with preparations for my first craft fair of the season. I was inspired by a photo from the Flickr group “My Face is My Canvas” and some beautiful purple flowers I’ve seen in the neighborhood. Emulating the flower was easy – purple wig and some large leaves I “borrowed” from a neighbor’s front yard. The bees are courtesy of the interwebs and some Photoshop. The “pollen” is another story. I don’t have colorful eyeshadows – at least not in yellow – so I used mustard powder instead.

I can safely say from experience that this was a stupid, stupid thing to do. It might not have shown on my face when I took the photo, but mustard powder eyeshadow = pain (and lots of sneezing). Thankfully, I removed the stuff as soon as I was done shooting and my eye is fine.

Note to self- buy some colorful eyeshadow and stop raiding the kitchen.

And because I’ve missed so many days  for my 365, I’ve decided to continue from 83 instead of starting at 93. Yes, I’m taking 10 days onto my 365, but I hate the idea of missing that many days in a row when it wasn’t something I had too much control over.

The Vasa Project’s vision is to bring photographers and other visual artists together to share work, ideas, exhibition information, essays on photography and new media in a dynamic and interactive online environment called Vasa Transmedia. We want to invite you to contribute essays, personal work, reviews, etc. to the Vasa blog and essentially become a part of the Vasa Transmedia community. If you are interested we would appreciate you linking your blog to the Transmedia blog and we ask that you add us to your blog roll as well. Essentially our goal is to bring photographers, writers and visual artists under one umbrella. We would also like you to consider doing a gallery talk about your work sometime in the future.You can check Transmedia Blog out at the link below. You can post a request to the blog to be a contributor and we will get back to you with submission details.


    “Transmedia is a global networking project publishing the work of artists, theorists, critics and others on an international scale transcending traditional media categories. At a time when global networked communications are breaking down traditional concepts of space and time and moving beyond traditional forms of publication and networking, Transmedia, VASA’s Blogging Project, connects people to events and people to people. The Transmedia, blog will cover photography, video, sound, digital art and theory. Transmedia will focus on artists, writers and theorists from north, south, central America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and New Zealand.”
